This was an excellent tour of the Granada Alhambra. Our guide was very thorough about the time and schedule for the day. It was very pleasant being in a small group and being able to skip the long line by entering in areas for guided tours only. The Alhambra has a long and interesting history making it a very special tour.

The guide Sergio was fantastic! I wish I could remember everything he said, because he had such amazing information. The transport itself was fine, except that on the way back, the driver seemed to be going slowly, and finally we got him to realize the ship would not wait. We were late getting back, but friends told crew we were very close. I don’t know if we stayed too long at the Alhambra or driver was slow. The tour did require some stamina and flexibility; maybe the tour mentioned that-if not, it should. Lots of uneven stairs and inclines. But worth it!

The "tour operator" didn't really do anything for us other than provide the transportation to the Alhambra. We were dropped off in Granada for about an hour and a half and then picked up and brought to the Alhambra. The tour there was excellent. However, they tend to make the groups too large and it got somewhat unwieldly at times. Overall, though, I thought it was worth the money.
